-word, default. >> uh-huh. >> the big elephant in the room is downgrades. people aren't talking about what happens if we downgrade. that affects everybody watching. >> i don't trust anybody saying this stuff. i don't trust the moody people. i don't even know who they are. all these people are lousy accountants. they've never been right. >> and also, who elected moodies and standard & poor's to guide this? the onus is on the house republicans. they did their job. they passed two things. they passed a 2012 paul ryan budget actually deals with the long-term structural issues we're all worried about, and they passed cut, cap and balance, which also deals with this. cut, cap and balance is the only plan out there that can stave off moodies and standard & poor's, and yet the democrats won't take a vote on it in the senate. >> the idea of a balanced budget amendment, it ain't going to happen. you made a good point. you may not have default in the traditional sense, and moody's said it's a problem, it's a downgrade issue. the downgrade will have an immediate impact on our borrowing power. >> absol
to raise money from big donors because they don't really like her. i think a few things are going on. that could be true. perry sitting on sidelines could be true. i think if the corporations or big donors, big bundlers have money to give, they are giving it to the senate g.o.p. races. >> bob: they are. the other reason they are not giving it to her is they are scared to death that she will become president. that's my new zealand point. give her credit for raising money. she did it last year, and state-of-the-arted in the healthcare debate. she was smart getting out there -- and smart in the healthcare debate. this is not as formidable -- >> eric: this is only june 27. >> bob: but the real key is in the presidential politics, how many times do you go to the donor list to give money? if you have those small con industrybutions you can go back four or five times. if you can't go back ten times you are probably not going to hold up a big number. >> eric: there is also news she may have quit her church. what do you know? >> greg: the church had interesting things to say about the pope. a
: the "the washington post" had a big front pager. apparently everybody from dianne feinstein, barbara were reportedly really upset and demanding answers from the top guy there jack lou on what this deal is w. boehner saying wait a second. >> you may be about to sell us out here. the democrats actually could, some are thinking, be the ones to scuttle any deal in the senate because of cuts, actually. >> bill: well, and this is the president's major mistake. he is not articulated to anybody what his vision is for getting out of this debt jam. let's be really simple because i'm a simple guy as you know, laura. first thing is under president obama we are now running up a debt at $4 billion a day. all right? nobody has ever come close in the history of this country to spending this much money $4 billion every single day is added to the debt. that's on the president's plate. he can make excuses for it he can do a little dance, but that is the fact, jack. so now the president has to say here's how i'm going it get the debt down, exactly he won't say it not only are republicans fearous about the de
